England Gotoarrow.png Derbyshire Gotoarrow.png Derbyshire Probate Records

Before 1858, most of Derbyshire was under the primary jurisdiction of the Court of the Bishop of Lichfield and Coventry (Episcopal Consistory) and the secondary jurisdiction of the Prerogative Court of Canterbury. However there were some exceptions.

Here is a list of the parishes of Derbyshire that were exceptions to the above, with the pre-1858 courts that had probate jurisdiction over them. Search the courts in the order given.

Search indexes first. For indexes, click on a court name or return to Derbyshire Probate Records. If no will is found, your ancestor may not have left one.
